Primus haven’t released a music video in years. Until now …November 17, 2011
It has been eleven or so years since Primus released a music video. That is, of course, until IFC premiered Primus’ visuals for the single “Tragedy’s a’ Comin’”, which comes off the band’s latest LP Green Naugahyde and features an up-beat sound along with lyrics from Les Claypool that speak of an impending doom.
So, how did Primus go about giving the single the video treatment? Well, the band decided to go the lobster route since a lobster about to be dropped into a boiling pot of water is as clear an example of impending doom as I can think of. After watching the video a few times, I can only hope that Les Claypool incorporates the lobster suit into the band’s live performance! Who’s with me?
